Interior Edit - Gallery Wall

Gallery Wall Inspiration

Think I'm definitely going to create a small gallery wall in my uni room for this year. I would start off with two bigger pieces, and then a few medium ones and smaller cards or prints. I like using a mix of framed prints, canvases and postcards pinned up with patterned washi tape, makes it look more put together I think.

Shop suggestions

Etsy shops - 1, 2, 3, 4

Where do you get art prints for your home from ? xxx

Nude Mood Board

Nude is a theme I have seen quite a lot, in street style looks and I have being using nude pieces in my polyvore sets recently too. So I have made a nude mood board from some of my favourite street style outfits to inspire me to make more sets.

Where do you take your style inspiration from at the moment?

Travel - Paphos, Cyprus

So I got back from my holiday to Cyprus a couple of weeks ago, think I definitely needed it after finishing uni for summer. We very lucky with the weather for all the ten days that we were there, nearly hitting 40 degrees in the first few days. Also having the pool by the villa was very useful, doing a good job of keeping us all cool. I managed to get a few snaps of the local area and other places when we went out for the day, and the bougainvillea in a few different colours. Which is pretty much everywhere, not that I'm complaining the colours of the flowers are really beautiful.

 Stopped at a cafe for much needed ice cream stop and a red flower from the garden 

The Municipal beach view

Ice cream stop again! I got banana chocolate brownie from the Häagen-Dazs parlour

 Sunset from the last nights and the inflatable crocodile hanging with the strawberry doughnut

Would recommend - The Municipal beach, Pissouri and Alykes beaches and the areas of Coral Bay and the harbour in Paphos.

Have you been on a trip aboard anywhere this year, or planning a trip somewhere?

The Best of Pinterest - Pots, Plants and Petals

I do love being outside and especially now its summer, a lot more flowers are in season and blooming, a few of the cottages near where I live have wild flowers growing outside, and all look so pretty at this time of year. My favourite flowers are wild daisies, peonies (of course), sunflowers and tulips. I also really want a mini succulent garden for my room. So for now here are my favourite flowers and plants pins from my pinterest board.

What are your favourite type of flowers and plants? xxx

Travel Essentials - Carry On Bag + Outfit

This year's holiday has come around very quickly, I'm quite excited too and may have gone a bit mad online shopping think I have a good excuse though. So when I know I'm going on holiday usually my first thought is a outfit for travelling, and what things I'm going to pack in my carry on, I normally take a small suitcase for this too. 

So obviously for travelling comfort is key, I would go for joggers or leggings, a t-shirt, a denim or bomber jacket plus maybe a sweater to wear on the plane as it usually gets a bit cold in the air. Then some shoes that can slip off easily when going through security or again when on the plane. 

In my carry on I would take some cosy socks and may be a blanket in case it gets a bit cold on the plane, sunglasses, some snacks like 'healthy' crisps and cereal bars, headphones to watch films or listen to music (these ones from frends are quite fancy), an empty water bottle to fill up after going through security, then I may also take a few skincare items an eye gel/cream, some face spray to help prevent the skin drying out too much, a moisturiser with spf and may be some face wipes to freshen up.

Are you travelling or going on holiday anywhere this year? xxx

Interior Edit - All White

All white furniture and decor is one of my favourite interior styles as well as bright patterns and individual pieces, but there just something about this decor that makes a room feel much more fresh, perfect for summer and Mediterranean vibes. So here are some photos below of some my favourite rooms featuring just that, and have inspired my polyvore creation above.

Key Pieces
